It’s Been A Hard Day’s Night..And I’ve been Working like A Dog..”Week 2″

This week was hectic! If I did not learn anything, one thing I did learn is that you cannot wait to long to get things done. The week goes by REALLY fast! Wow! Maybe it was because Labor Day was Monday. However, this was another successful week learning lots of information about Digital Storytelling. I want to first begin talking about the readings we had to reflect on. After reading the article, “A Logic Named Joe: The 1946 sci-fi short that nailed modern tech.” I was a little confused at first what I was reading. Therefore, I had to read it various times to understand what the main idea of the article was. The other article I found quite challenging to read was: “Web 2.0 Storytelling“. I learned about how blogs relate to diaries and how temporally structured blogging are produced. I find blogging a creative resource that lets you release your feelings and thoughts about situations. While reading this article, I annotated and commented on peoples post about the article. I like how interactive you can be using Hypothesis. Did you know that Wikis can be use in storytelling? Yes, depending on the type of collaboration, writing can be attached to media in the form of writing prompts. Next, transitioning into my favorite part of #DS106 is customizing my website and participating in the Daily Creates. Daily Creates might be my favorite thing about this class. I enjoy learning about new discoveries and challenging myself to be creative then the previous occurrence. Feel free to look at the three daily creates I responded to on twitter:

(Here’s my first create!) 

(Here’s my second create!)

(Here’s my third create!) 

Lastly, the assignment bank was very interesting. My first assignment I choose to do was creating my own character: ( I found that to be mind-opening. 6 stars was the max for this assignment.

My second assignment ( 2 stars was the max for this assignment.

Also, I’m looking forward to changing my theme a couple times before it looks complete.
